The Moody Blues to release 'Days Of Future Passed Live' on blu-ray, DVD and CD on March 23, 2018

I count The Moody Blues as one of the greatest 1960s-spawned artists still performing today. Along with The Zombies and John Fogerty, they continue to deliver potent and powerful performances well into the 21st century! Now comes word that The Moody Blues have an exciting release coming out next week in connection with the 50th anniversary of their seminal album 'Days Of Future Passed.' Get all the details below...

On March 23, 2018, Eagle Rock Entertainment will release Days Of Future Passed Live by The Moody Blues on DVD, Blu-ray and 2CD.  Filmed in high definition, this title captures The Moody Blues delivering an incredible performance of Days Of Future Passed live in its entirety with a full orchestra.  This stunning concert includes: “Nights In White Satin”, “Tuesday Afternoon (Forever Afternoon)”, “I’m Just A Singer (In A Rock And Roll Band)”, “Isn’t Life Strange”, “I Know You’re Out There Somewhere”, “Question”, “Ride My See-Saw”, and many more.
The Moody Blues’ classic 1967 album Days Of Future Passed is regarded as one of the foundation stones of the progressive rock genre. In 2017, the band headed out on the album’s 50th Anniversary Tour which included the wonderful show captured here at the Sony Centre For The Performing Arts in Toronto, accompanied by a full orchestra. The concert begins with the band by themselves performing a selection of classic Moody Blues tracks before they are joined by the orchestra to perform Days Of Future Passed plus a couple of fantastic encore tracks. The Bonus Feature, entitled “Remembering Days Of Future Passed”, delivers brand new interviews with Justin HaywardJohn Lodge and Graeme Edge discussing the making of this classic album.
The Moody Blues -- Justin Hayward (guitar, vocals); John Lodge (bass, vocals); Graeme Edge (drums, percussion)– are joined on stage by Norda Mullen (flute, guitar, percussion, vocals); Julie Ragins (keyboards, percussion, guitar, saxophone, vocals); Alan Hewitt (keyboards, vocals); Billy Ashbaugh (drums, percussion)and Elliot Davis (musical director, conductor and co-arranger).  The live show also features the voice of Oscar-winning actor Jeremy Irons on the two spoken word tracks: “Morning Glory” and “Late Lament”.
Days Of Future Passed Live is without doubt the definitive live version of this much-loved album and will be treasured by fans of The Moody Blues for years to come.
